Trail Notes-.~-M.O.R.E. GIVES l.oTS OF$ To FIGHT CANCER-Once again, the M.O.R.E. Powder Puff race was a whopping suGcess. A big part of the entry fee goes to the Womans Cancer Research Institute of Cedars Sinai Hospital, searching for the cure of breast cancer. This year Jim and his troops ·at M.O.R.E. donated $110,125 to the institute. That is certainly a worthy cause and the donation was absolutely most generous. Congrats to all involved. NEW BITD OFFICIAL TIRE -In a joint announcement at the Off-Road Expo in Pomona, California, Casey Folks, Director of Best in the Desert racing association, and Travis Roffler, director of marketing for General Tire, made the exciting news of General Tire being named Official Tire of Best in the Desert series for three years, starting with the 2010 season. "General Tires have thundered through some of the toughest, most exciting desert racing events under the Best in the Desert banner. We are looking forward to a solid partnership," said Travis Roffler, "With General becoming the official tire of Best In The Desert, this again proves General Tire's brand commitment to the off-road community and our continuation to push the envelope in this industry." Casey Folks commented, "We are very enthusiastic to have General Tire on-board as Official Tire Sponsor of our series. Their wide-reaching dealer network and ability to activate their sponsorship will be substantial for both General Tire and Best in the Desert." Folks went on to comment, "Best in the Desert racing is unlike any other form of motorsports, and is truly a test of man and machine, and tires are a critical component. General Tire's newest offerings are proven by leading competitors like B.J. Baldwin, Rick D. Johnson, Kent Kroeker, Ricky Johnson and scores of others. General Tires' commitment to the sport through Best in the Desert will be strong for all competitors." Best in the Desert racing offers to racers, fans and the thousands of spectators that line the course, the opportunity to experience one of the truly unique adventures of their lives. One of the best parts about a Best in the Desert race is it's free to watch. No charge to wander the pits, experience the exci~ement of contingency row, manufacturer's displays and the chance to be in the action at many of the pits as many are easily accessed from major highways, and do not require a pit pass. Next race up for Best in the Desert is the Henderson Fabtech Desert Classic December 3-6, 2009. MIDWEST SPORTSMAN OFF ROAD RACERS UNITE! After a race season that saw racer participation drop significantly over the previous· season, a group ofMidweyt drivers have come together to form an association to bring the sidelined competitors back to the track. The group known as, Midwest Off Road Racing (MORR), has one mission: To provide affordable racing for the Midwest sportsman off road racer, while creating a series of weekend events that allow the competitor and the enthusiast to enjoy their favorite summer time sport seven to eight times per season. Our mission is to bring this to reality beginning in 2010, and that this unique form of motorsport is alive and well for years to come. The concept of this group began after a stand alone short course event was held in Weyauwega, Wisconsin. Thanks to the support of racers, team members, and fans at this event, the racing program was successful. Nearly 100 racers and their crews came out to support an independent Sportsman only event. "After Weyauwega, a group of us knew what needed to happen to get more of our racers back to the track," noted veteran off-road racer Dan Vanden Heuvel Sr. "Obviously, our nation's economy caused some of the reduced turnout, but there were other factors as well. Our goal is to make it more affordable for the racers, while increasing the number of races offered to the Sportsman. This will not happen overnight, but if steps are continually taken at a reasonable pace, our goals will be achieved. Some of the initial communication between the parties has already started." MORR is designed to give. the sportsman off-road racer one large voice to express their concerns with the current and future promoters, sanctioning bodies, and track owners of this sport. The concept will strengthen current relationships within the industry and allow our members to compete in a true championship season. Please visit our website, HYPERLINK "" \t "_blank" www.midwest-offroadracin~. i;om for more information. Please show your support by adding your name to the HYPERLINK "" \t "_blank" l).e.tition. When new informatictn, including membership is available, it will be posted on the website and emailed to those that have contacted MORR. Look for an announcement regarding a general meeting, open to the public, sometime after the first of the year. You can also communicate with the group via email: HYPERLINK "" MASTERCRAFT - Mastercraft Safety is unveiling a new line of race suits at the 2009 SEMA show. Expanding upon the already extensive line of safety and race-related products, Mastercraft Safety is introducing an all new line of SFI 3.2Nl and SFI 3.2N5 race suits at the 2009 SEMA show. Available in a single layer fire-resistant cotton or double layer Nomex material, the Signature and custom line of race suits by Mastercraft Safety are specifically designed for the unique conditions inherent to off-road racing. Contact Mastercraft at 1-800-565-4042. FINAL FLAG - 'Big John' Gerdes passed away with his family by his side August 28th, 2009. John and Tom Haliburda began their off-road racing careers with the drop of the green flag for the 1971 Baja 1000. They built the 1955 Ford race truck in six weeks, were charter ~embers of FA.LR., and the rest is history. A true pioneer of our sport, to my surprise I found out that my father, who had never raced before, came up with the idea to start off-road racing. I always thought it was his 'respectfully crazy' friend Tom that got my dad into this. Like Mutt and Jeff, if you know Tom, you know my father. A lot of you know my dad. He's helped a lot of you out in the desert for many years, and loved every bit of it. Big John hung up his helmet in 1989, and has passed the racing legacy to his sons and grandchildren. Decades ago he helped to start our sport of off-road racing. Thanks Dad, 'Big John'. The off.road tradition carries on. Survived by his wife of 53 years, Florence, sons, John and Dennis, daughter, Marie, eight grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren, Big John Gerdes crossed the finish line a winner. Know and loved by many, John's presence will be missed. BOBBY FERRO - Had a phone call the other day inquiring as to the whereabouts of Bobby Ferro. You remember Ferro, he was the guy always winning a bunch of races a long time ago.

The group of twenty very committed off.road enthusiasts met to fine-tune the mission of MORR. The redefined MORR Mission Statement is as follows: The goal of the Midwest Off Road Racing group is to insure affordable racing for the Midwest Sportsman Off Road Racer by uniting racers with a common voice. Maintaining affiliations with approved sanctioning bodies will allow the competitor and the enthusiast to enjoy off road racing now and in the future. MORR is not creating another race series. In fact, the group is working with TORC to bring back affordable Sportsman racing. The initial talks between the two groups on this point are very promising. As of November ·11, 2009, TORC has posted race dates for 4 race weekends in the Upper Midwest. These are PRO and Sportsman events. MORR has also expressed the need for additional Sportsman racing in the Upper Midwest, and TORC is actively working to address that issue. MORR is also in the very early discussion stages of additional Sportsman concerns. Updates on these issues will be announced in the near future."The other order of business was the election of the MORR Board of Directors. After eleven members were nominated, each candidate briefly voiced their qualifications and goals for the group. All candidates were highly qualified, but only 7 could be elected. The 2010 MORR Board of Directors are: President• Dan Vanden Heuvel, Vice-President• Ross Hoek, Secretary -Mike Vanden Heuvel, Treasurer - Pat Flanagan, Directors at Large • Don Demeny, Geoff Dorr, & Mike Reusche. All board members will be available for questions and comments at the TORC Midwest Sportsman Banquet on December 5, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. A general membership meeting to fully explain and discuss the mission of the Midwest Off-Road Racing group will be scheduled after the first of the year. If you have any questions {)T concerns about the Midwest Off-Road Racing group, please contact any board member via email: Dan Vanden Heuvel, Ross Hoek, Mike Vanden Heuvel, Pat Flanagan, LUCAS OIL OFF ROAD RACING SERIES -Primm Championship Weekend Corona, Ca. (November 11, 2009) • The finale of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) inaugural season is coming to the Primm Valley Motorsports Complex in Primm, Nevada November 14th and 15th. The series returns to the off road track in Primm, the location of the season opener, where season ending battles for championships in virtually every class will be contested in rounds 11& 12. With his first visit to Primm this year, Robert Naughton immediately struck his claim on the Unlimited Lite field by sweeping rounds 1&2 at the first event. He ultimately relinquished his hold on the class in rounds 9&10 as Chris Brandt, with a season of consistent podium finishes, took the top spot.heading into Primm. Throughout the season, Metal Mulisha General Brian Deegan has fought his way through the class to find himself in contention for a championship. Now, along with Naughton, looking to storm back from his disappointment in Surprise, Arizona, the pair are certain to challenge Brandt for the title until the last lap·of the weekend is completed. Over the length of his short course racing career, Carl Renezeder has faced a multitude of challenges and challengers. This weekend in Primm he looks to complete what could be his greatest accomplishment yet: championships in both the Unlimited 2 and Unlimited 4 truck classes. While the 860hp trucks Renezeder fields in competition appear to be quite similar, the two and four wheel · drive characteristics of each truck require drastically different approaches when navigating the high flying off road tracks. The difficulty of accomplishing a double championship will oe amplified by the resolve of both Alan Pflueger and Jeff Ward. Pflueger, the Unlimited 4 newcomer, sits just behind Renezeder as these teamates will square off for the final time this season while Ward is looking to amplify his amazing rookie year by taking the top spot in U-2. The. Primm Valley Motorsports Complex is located just south of Las Vegas in Primm, Nevada. Practice and qualifying sessions will be held on Friday, November 13th with racing action throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday. Gates will open at 9am. Tickets are available in advance at or at the box office on site. Short course off road racing will return to The Lake Elsinore Motorsports Complex for the Rockstar Energy/Lucas Oil Challenge Cup December 11th and 12th. The Rockstar Energy/Lucas Oil Challenge Cup is a stand alone event, featuring unprecedented purses in a variety of short course off road racing classes.About the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series: The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) is the evolution of the long standing support of short course racing by Forrest Lucas and Lucas Oil Products. Steeped in the Midwest tradition of short course off road racing infused with a West Coast influence, LOORRS brings intense four wheel door to door action to challenging, fan friendly tracks.

Oct 11 2009 - Hello Race Fans. I'm here in beautiful Barstow, CA at the Johnson Valley OHV for the Fourth Annual M.O.R.E./Royal Purple Powder Puff Race For A Cure. All proceeds from this event go to Cedar's Sinai Hospital for women's breast cancer research. It's an awesome day - clear blue skies, sunshine, warm temps. What M.O.R.E. can you ask for? How ·about 191 entries? Wow! Pink is the color of the day and fun is the active word. The M.O.R.E. Powder· Puff Race For A Cure is all about rais-ing money for a worthy cause -and having fun doing it. Fast women in fast cars. Works for me. The Fifth Annual M.O.R.E./ Royal Purple Powder Puff Race For A Cure attracted 191 all-women entries in 19 Classes and 178 racers started. M.O.R.E. than your regular old race event. Mass quantities of humanity are in attendance and support. More people than the eye can see. Main pit is packed. This Ace Reporter counted many pits with ten or more people, and many pits with ten or more RVs. A sea of RVs and trailers and racers and spectators. Times the number of race entries -and you have the largest crowd I've seen at many a race. And I've been at many races. All those racers -and only one Ace Reporter: me. We've got a lot of dirt to cover Race Fans - so let's get this party started. The band and BBQ and fun follows. Bring a chair. Have fun but play safe. The Course was 27 miles long with three Road Crossings (RX), four Check Points (CK), and the usual assortment of bumps, rocks, ruts, dust, whoops, hills, sand, puk-ker bushes, down arrows, "got" cha' s and other miscellaneous obstacles.

Dang, girl! Harper and co-driver, Nikki Prichard, from Las Vegas, NV started first off the line at the green flag in car #599. Prichard summed up her race -"It was the ride from he!!. I was all 'Game-On!' when we started, and then we hit the first BIG bump and got air born at RXl -and after that I wanted "Out" at the first sign of people! Christine drives like a speed demon and way 'too fast'. It was absolutely a blast and fun -and I'll never do it again", Prichard said. Kristen 'All 4's Down' Flaherty came all the way from Golden, CO and took over the wheel duties in car #599 on Lap 2 along with co-driver Ginni Milke from El Cajon, CA. "It was a great ride" said Milke. "Kristen knows how to drive and we dusted at least ten cars and passed two bugs at once. It was fun seeing all the ladies and spectators; lots of ~-" Flaherty said: "This was an amazing opportunity. It was dusty, but we had a clean race. The car stayed cool and we kept a fast pace. There was lots of sportswoman-like conduct. I hit it hard on the nose on Lap 2, but we had a good race and made it all the way without any potty or other breaks."

But a win is a "Win" no matter how it is won in open desert off-road rac-ing. Getting to the finish line first in 'one' piece is often the margin-of-victory.

My co-driver Heather 'Hedz' Birdwell (DAMZL) and I started get-ting ready about 11: 15am, stretching and putting on all our safety gear. Then it was time to get strapped into Pinky #132. We were last off the line at 12:19pm. Pinky #132, Hedz and I were on a mission: we wanted to win, not for us, but for all the people that have helped us get to where we are today!" "Lap 1 was very rough and the visibility was horrible. Lap 2 we had moved up from 20th place to 5th place. Again tackling zero visibility and making our way to the front of the pack, we started getting into lap traffic and just seeing the course got harder and harder. We picked off two more cars in our class on Lap 3, with Lori Robinson in #26 and Shirley Jergensen in #5 about one minute ahead. I knew I had to stay consistent plus step it up a bit. Lap 4 - time to fuel Pinky #132, do a quick once over, and then send us back out. We had dropped back about two minutes with the pit stop, but we were still in third place." "Lap 5 just before the college loop at the 180° turn - there was four cars ahead of us. Hitting the 180° turn, I took the inside and passed all four cars! At this point I was just praying for some clear air ahead. We hit speeds of over 100 mph on a mission to get to the S/F before the cut off time. We made it with two minutes to spare and got the green light for another lap! Woo Hoo! Knowing Lori & Shirley were ahead just by a minute -we needed to make up that time. About seven miles before the finish line, we saw a big cloud of dust. Slowing down, we saw Shirley Jergensen in #5 had flipped with all four tires in the air. We got the sign that she was ok and off we went to finish the race in Second place. Loosing the Race by one minute and one second was amazing given the conditions and number of racers on the course. We all won that day." Hedz Birdwell described the race from the #132 co-driver's seat, this way: "As co-driver for 'Jenzl' Clemison, we knew it would be a tuff battle at the dusty rough ter-rain in Barstow. I couldn't imagine how imminent the danger was. lap 1 was just a dusty fog. I think more dust was inside my helmet than out. Thank God for our angels who led us through the completely still dust bowl with no accidents. lap 2 was ferocious. I laid into the horn so much that I unintentionally switched driver Jenzl's air off for her helmet. OOOPS! The last few laps, Jenzl was like a kamikaze pilot on a mission to catch up with the leaders of the race. Tony Nguyen and the Clemison Boyz did an amazing job prepping the car. Pinky #132 ran flawlessly without a flat and we roared through finish second in Class and Second Overall. It was one heck of a race and I truly appreciate the level of competition. Thank you to M.O.R.E for putting on this extraordinary race, thank you Royal Purple for your amazing support of women's Breast Cancer Research and thanks especially to all the women who raced this year to make the Powder Puff a one of a kind event!"

Second overall, Daniel Sordo and Marc Marti were only 12 seconds in arrears at the end, seen here before an.admiring crowd. Technically there was little new among the cars. The PSD Lancer Evo Xs were fitted with new aluminium sumpguards to overcome the tendency experienced in Finland for nosedown landings which damaged the old guards. Under asphalt rally rules competitors had a choice of which type of tyres to use, and this was the first time the PSD drivers had such a choice to make. Although the Fiesta R2 made its competition debut in Turkey earlier in the year, it was the world championship debut for this model, five of which were taking part. Shakedown saw Citroen sweep the board, Loeb was quickest at 2m36.4s, l.0s in front of Ogier, with Sordo at 2h37.9s and then Petter Solberg on his ninth run fin ally making 2m38.0s, nearly· a second in -front of the best Ford. There were a total of ten non-starters so 70 cars started the event, the second biggest field in this year's championship. Day 1 - 6 Stages -Asphalt - 131.76kms The Citroen Team were going to enjoy this event and the happiest face of all was that of their Spanish driver Dani Sordo -who immediately took the lead on his home event. Mikko Hirvonen was running first car on the road, as befitted his championship leading status, and was the first driver to discover that the road conditions were a lot damper, from overnight rain, than had been expected. He. settled into third place behind the two official Citroen Total-2 0drivers. Sordo however, like everyone else, found that the roads were especially humid under the trees. His team leader Sebastien Loeb, Eyvind Brynildsen and Denis Giraudet took the Group N honors at Catalunya, they're seen here in their Skoda Fabia S2000. lying second, was nervous at that did Wales Rally GB and hated it, the lack of a gravel note crew and nowadays it is fantastic."

In 2001 I second." Hirvonen compared his performance with those of the year before, "This year we lost ten seconds less over the day compared with the Citroens!" Latvala felt that he was gradually getting a better rhythm but was still not fully confident. In the JWRC category Hans Weijs went straight into the lead with his Citroen C2 S1600 ahead of Martin Prokop. Prokop said he was told it would be completely dry, and had overheated his brakes when driving over the wet patches. Aaron Burkart made a bad start. On stage one he spun, then on stage two he went off the road into the trees but fortunately he was able to rejoin tµe road again. Mark Wallenwein drove most of the of the morning stages with no power steering, then he had brake trouble and went off the road on stage four, "What a shame, finally the car was going well .. " Kevin Abbring found the stages were unsuitable for the heavier and less powerful R3 cars, and at the end of stage five, as he was changing tyres, he found a big pool of oil under the gearbox and stopped for the rest of the day. On the first stage of the afternoon Prokop got ahead of Weijs and by thee nd of the day was 12 seconds ahead with guest driver Jordi Marti third.

Then Tapper stopped on the road section on the way to stage three with engine failure, and on stage six Nie Thomas stopped for the same reason. Of the=2 0five PSD drivers only two, Jarkko Nikara and Williams, were left still running. Four of the five Fiesta R2s were still going strong, the only absentee was the Turkish lady driver Burco Cetinkaya who went off the road into a tree. The Stewards were at work, privateer Heikki Westerlund and Spanish Subaru team driver Marcos Barquin were excluded for forgetting to make a detour to a passage control on the sea front at Salou, en route to the final service part control of the day. Also working overtime were the Ralliart Italy engineers trying to discover why Mark Tapper and Nie Thomas had stopped and were alarmed to find that both had broken conrods and were out for the rest of the event. Day 2 - 6 Stages -Asphalt -127.98kms Khalid Al Qassimi was back again. This was really proving to be a six car race, four Citroens and two Fords. So far no other driver had even finished in the top six positions on a stage! Sebastien Loeb beat Dani Sordo by 1.6 second on the first stage which meant after stage seven they were exactly equal in the lead. After stage eight Loeb was 0.2 in front, after stage nine Sordo was leading by 0.9 second, "My drivers are very experienced and know our objectives, there is no point to ask them to go slower. I will just let them carry on and enjoy themselves," said Citroen Racing chief Olivier Quesnel. Petter Solberg was gradually getting=2 0into his stride, "One step after another, its coming better _all the time," while the Ford drivers were doing everything to maintain their • position, even if the cars really did not seem to be fast enough. Sebastien Ogier had a lucky moment when he touched a stone with a rear wheel on stage seven and bent a rim, but nothing worse. On stage seven, Novikov retired after he spun the C4, wrecking the right hand suspension on a rock. His retirement allowed everyone to move up one place. Paul Bird staggered back to service with complete clutch failure. Latvala found stage nine was the dirtiest of the rally, it was disastrous as the rideheight of the car was just too low for comfort, "All I can say is that we lost less time on this stage than we had done this time last year." Page 18 The close battle for the lead continued through the second loop - all the time the greatest gap between Sordo and Loeb was 2.1 seconds, and Hirvonen's task was · to keep a careful eye on the stage split times to make sure that Petter did not get to close to him. By the end of the day Petter was 22.4 seconds behind, 24 hours earlier he had been 25.5 seconds behind. Hirvonen was calm, "Yesterday we lost 32 seconds to the leaders, today we only lost another 13 seconds and much of that was due to going carefully on the final stage in the gravel." The damage was being contained. Conditions through the afternoon were as=2 0expected, with a lot more loose gravel scattered towards the end of the final stage of the loop, but the main topic concerned the tyres. Cars arrived with tyres still showing plenty of tread but drivers reporting that the tyres soon lost their grip if they pushed too hard. Ogier lying fifth found that his front tyres were wearing out unusually quickly on the longer stages. Henning Solberg was happier though lying -only ninth. "We changed the suspension set-up to what Gronholm used in 2007 and it worked!" Federico Villagra was holding eighth place despite a stall in a hairpin. And happiest of all was Petter who finally scored a fastest time. In JWRC Martin Prokop maintained his lead wit h Hans Weijs holding second despite a personal disaster for his codriver Bjorn Degandt -when he smashed his lip on his crash helmet while reaching into the rear of the car. The Dutch team of Weijs and Abbring were both still in strong points scoring positions needed for the Federation Challenge. On stage seven Aaron Burkart spun and went off the road and then on the second time through the loop of stages Prokop went off on stage ten and retired and Wei:js found himself in the JWRC lead and the Federation Cup was gifted to the Dutchmen. "Asi" continued on his way leading the Group N competitors. Brynildsen was able to pass Gassner into second place in the category when Gassner had a puncture. PSD driver Semerad restarted=2 0butwas delayed with a puncture while Williams and Nikara were still going strong until Williams stopped three kilometres from·the end of stage 12 with similar gearbox problem as Semerad. Day 3 - 6 Stages -Asphalt -93.88kms The final day's stages were slightly shorter in distance but again consisted of two loops of three stages, this time closer to the rally base at Salou. Restarting again were Evgeny Novikov and Aaron Burkart, running under SupeRally rules, but not Martin Prokop. As drivers felt completely comfortable with their settings the event developed into a procession. Novikov went off the road once again and retired due it seemed to a pun cture. Paul Bird misjudged a bend and went off in his Ford, touching two spectators and retiring on the spot. As the rally drew to a close, the question being asked was whether this was a ·good time for tactics or not? As things stood, Hirvonen would lead the Drivers' championship, by one point from Loeb, and thereby would start Rally GB first car on the road in three weeks time. Should Hirvonen let Petter Solberg pass him into third place and thereby give Mr Loeb the honour of being first car on the road? However, the conditions on Rally GB are far from certain and whether running first car on the road on the first day would be good or bad! So the decision was taken. No tactics would be played out at the end of this event. And another strange story. Petter was brought into the event because of his tactical opportunities, but then when it was realised a podium result would prejudice Loeb's chances in Britain, Petter was not needed ... Sordo marginally eased his pace and Loeb gradually pulled ahead. The main excitement of the afternoon was that Brynildsen finally overcame his earlier time loss because of his brake trouble, and edged passed the Hungarian driver ''Asi" into the lead of Group N, with two stages to go. Nikara made the fastest times of the PSD drivers on every stage except the first. Jon Williams went off the road near the end of stage 16 but got back to the road again to finish last PSD driver on this occasion. Further back a Fiesta R2, on its WRC debut, finished 25th overall and won its class. It was in the hands of Lambros Athanassoulas, the local Greek guest driver who won the Junior category on the Acropolis Rally. A late retirement was the Citroen C2 R2 Max of Neuville with alternator failure. Meanwhile the Citroen Total team marched off with their fifth Makes' world championship title and waited and wondered whether Loeb will eventually win his sixth, successive, Drivers' title on the final round in Britain. 45th RallyRACC Catalunya-Costa Oaurada (E) Salou 214.10.2009 WCR round 11, JWRC round 8 1 (1) Sebastien'LOEB/Daniel Elena F/MC Citroen C4 WRC 734EGZ78 (F) 3h.2'2m.14.7s. 10 10 2 (2) Daniel SORDO/Maro Marti E Citroen C4 3h.2'2m.26.7s. 8 8 3 (3) Mikko HIRVONEN/Jarmo Lehtinen FIN Ford Focus RS 3h.23m.ci8.8s. 6 6 4 (11) Petter Solberg/Phftip Mills N/GB Citroen C4 3h.23m.27.1s. 5 5 (12) Sebastien OGIER/Julien Ingrassia F Citroen C4 3h.23m.56.3s. 5 4 6 (4) Jan-Matti LATVALA/MiikkaAnttila FIN Ford Focus RS 3h.25m.04.5s. 4 3 7 (5) Matthew WILSON/Scott Martin GB Ford Focus RS 3h.29m:30.2s. 3 2 8 (9) Federiro VILLAGRA/Jorge Perez Companc RA 9 (6) Henning SOLBERG/Cato Menkerud ·N Ford Focus RS 3h.31 m.2'2.3s. 1 . 10 (66) Dany Snobeck/Gilles Mondesir F 3h.33m.10.7s. 11 (8) Conrad RAUTENBACH/Daniel Banitt 3h.33m.22.3s. t 12 (36) Hans Weijs/Bjom Degandt 3h.40m.35.5s. , 13 (7 4) Eyvind Bl)'nffdsen/Denls Giraudet 3h.41m.22.7s.+ Z.W/GB NUB N/F Peugeot307 Citroen C4 Citroen C2 S1600 Skoda Fabia S2lOO 14 (14) Khalid Al Qassimi/Michael Orr 3h.41 m.26.0s.(2) UAE/GB Ford Focus RS 17 (63) Ja~o Nikara/Jarkko Kalliolepo 3h.45m.20.5s. 18 (33) Simone BertolotWLuca Celestini 3h.45m.24.6s, 19 (59) Jordl Marti/Gabriel Sanchez 3h.46m.58.3s. 27 (37) Kevin Abbring/Erwin Mombae~ 3h.55m.28.1 s.( 1) 37 (31) Aaron Burkart/Michael Kolbach 4h.00rn.48.5s. • 44 {62) Jon Williams/George Gvtynn 4h.18rn.00.0s.( 1) FIN Mitsubishi lanoor Evo X Suzuki Swift S1000 E Renault Clio R3 NL/B Renault Clio R3 D Suzuki Swift S1~ ZA/GB Mitsubishi Lana!r Evo X WRC 454EMX78 (F) WRC SAOOVHR (GB) WRC 723EGZ78 (F) , I WRC AA-655-VF (F) WRC PX08AXB (GB) WRC 1ES(GB) Ford Focus RS WRC EU07SUV (GB) WRC WRC JWRC 10 N WRC N* JWRC 8 JWRC 6 JWRC 5 JWRC 4 N* 99AKF69(F) 738EGZ78 (F) H-PR2206 (D) 90E66S(CZ) AG5'1CKA (GB) DS705PC(I) KIH353(H) 6288FDV (E) 62-SN-VX (NL) SSE002(H) DS701PC (I) 70 (7 JWRC) starters. 52 (5 JWRC) finishers. -+Group N winner.

Open House Text & Phot-0s: Rod Koch Open House on October 24, 2009, many folks, vendors and vehicles made it a great event! Kar Tek had a dynamic turn out for it's Open House on Saturday October 24th. Kar Tek's Corona, CA facility had race cars, sandrails, trucks, rockcrawlers, UTV,s and Tro-phy Karts, filling the two city blocks and parking lots in front of their store. A raffle took place which resulted in one of the lucky spectators winning a Deser.t Dynamics dual sport roller chassis as the grand prize. Vendors booths were everywhere with colorful displays from the leaders in the off-road industry. Inside the Kar Tek store, employees may have had one of their busiest days, as customers lined up for clearance sales on many parts and accessories. For those who have visited Kar Tek's store, it is off-road visual overlead. You will fmd just about everything needed to build or fmish an off-road racer, pre-runner, or sand/ play car. However, the best items you will find at Kar Tek are the staff's enthusiasm and help a customer, whether you're buying a simple toggle switch or spending thou-sands for off-road suspension components. Long time Kar Tek employ-ee, Rob Roy, indicated that ifKar Tek didn't have in. stock the exact suspension or brake components a racer needs, Kar Tek's affiliate engineering/ machine shop Pro-Am, located just a bloc;k away, could prob-ably make it. Pro-Am now oper-ated separately by Roy Debhan, former ceo ofKar Tek, has a number of CNC computerized machines that turns out high quality off-road racing parts, as well as specialty parts for other racing organizations such as NASCAR. With Roy running Pro-Am, Kar Tek is now operated by Mike Obeid and cousin, Mark. Separating Kar Tek from Pro-Am has had positive results according to Rob Roy, with Kar Tek's do-mestic and international sales increasing. Out in the Kar Tek p·arking lot and in the street directly in front ofthe store, it looked like contingency row for a major off-road race. Around Mike Obeid was busy all day helping customers fulfill their needs, sales were brisk most of the day. 70 vehicles were lined up here and there. The Sourapas/ Mc-Cathren Class 1/ 1500 off-road super racer was looking very good and up for sale. Sitting along side were two nice Desert. llat buggies, with LS 1-V8's, one for the sand and the other a pre-runner. Across the street were several good looking ex-amples of Predator Corp. Class 3000 two seat racers. These 2.2 liter Ecotec powered 103" wheel base cars were eligible for BITD and MDR events. One rock-crawler, Jeep ap-pearing vehicle with all-wheel drive and steering, looked ready to take on any obstacle put in front of it. In front ofKar Tek's entrance was parked a legendary Class 1 race car, the Funco SS-2 of Malcolm Smith and Bud Feldcamp. This was the ISSIBel-Ray "Bullet" that won every major off-road race worth mentioning back in 1976-78. Several Class 5-1600 Baj~ Bugs were on display along with a couple of 1-2/1600's and one Class 9/Challenger class single seater. While these represented lesser expensive ways to go, a SCORE lite and a Class 10 racer were also on display, along with several roller chas-sis which could be built into anyone of these classes. One good looking red Class 1100 car, #1129, was owned by Ron Malekow and built by Gary Seagroves and powered by a hot VW Type 1 motor. A full on Class 5 Baja Bug sat over towards the entrance to Kar Tek and nearby were several truck class off-road racers, a couple of Trophy Trucks plus one short-course race truck. Quite a display and whatever kind of off-road racer or sand buggy a spectator was inter-ested in, seemed to be there. Inside the Kar Tek store was a bulletin board which had photo listings of several used off-road racers, pre-runners and sand cars for sale. Despite the current reces-sion, visiting Kar Tek's Open House event, gave every in-dication that off-road sports are alive and doing quite well. Along with supplying a full line of off-road parts and accessories, Kar Tek con-tinues to offer support and encouragement at a number of off-road events. The next one coming up on December 12th, ' 2009 is the Kar Tek Western Desert Challenge, organized by SNORE (Southern Nevada Off-Road Enthusiasts). With the enthusiastic turn out for Kar Tek's Open House, this event should be an annual affair.

Then Berghold and Williams had a good race for the lead with Wil-liams making the pass on the last lap for the moto and overall win. Berghold was second for the day and Rupley third. In Group T there were 10 trucks and Randy Avery (348) pulled the wholeshot in his red V8 4x4 jeep built for tuff truck races. Bruce Field (858) was in hot pursuit fol-lowed by Joel Swanson (T635), Eric Steiger (9), Randy Blacker (6069) and Jake Pavey (502).

On lap 2 Avery was going for the lead and rolled in the pit turn but land-ed on his wheels not missing a beat. Later in the lap Avery spun out then on lap three the rear axle hous-ing broke in half taking him out for the day. This moved the six trucks battling for second place up to take the spotlight. Those trucks were Ben Phillips (6043), Garry Mannion (838), Steiger, Swenson, Pavey, and Blacker. By mid race Field had a huge lead over phillips and Mannion while Steiger, Pavey, Blacker and Swenson continued to exchange positions.

OJIBWE FORESTS RALLY Pastrana Wins Again Text & Photos: Jerry Winker Travis Pastrana and Christian Edstrom took their fourth consecutive Ojibwe win and a fourth consecutive Rally-America Championship in the Subaru WRX STi. Travis Pastrana was unstop-pable again for the fourth year in a row. Ojibwe Forest Rally in Bemidji, MN was the loca-tion of his first Rally-America win back in 2006 and each year after he has been dealt a lucky hand and become the winner. His teammate Ken Block, who had just one finish at this event in four previous tries, was handed yet another blow early on after destroying nis car in a major roll. A number of the regular competitors were missing from the event as their funds had been allocated to running the X-games or they were financially tapped out after· running there. Andrew Comrie-Picard, Tanner Foust, and Matthew Johnson all had to pass on running the event. That did not deter from the action that followed Pastrana who was fastest on all but the final three stages of the event. 2009 again has become the "Travis and Ken Show" with Pastrana and Block dominating the series. Pastrana had wins at Sno-Drift, Olympus, Oregon, and New England and Block was the winner of the other rounds at 100 Acre Wood and Susquehannock Trail. Subaru Team USA was again going to be the team ·to beat at Ojibwe and the man most likely to beat the Subaru WRX STi's was Poland's Andi Mancin in a Mit-subishi Lancer Evo 9. Mancin has been getting faster all sea-son long and a large contingent of fellow countrymen who had immigrated to the U .S. from Chicago's south side showed up to cheer him and his teammate Arkadiusz Gruszka on. Other drivers in the open class to watch were Bob Olson whose Subaru 2.5RS had shown strong potential last year at Lake Superior Performance Rally, Mark Fox who was running for the just the second time in the ex-Ken Block Subaru WRX STi and Nate Conley who had built a 2004 Subaru lmpreza to run at X-Games last year but had been sidelined by a heavy crash at Pikes Peak weeks before the car was to have debuted. Supe~ Production is the class that has replaced the Produc-tion GT category at the start of this year and already the fields have been impressive! Because it allows older GT cars more freedo m from having to run stock parts throughout the car and allowing certain modifi-cations, the fields at national even ts h ave boasted as many as ten cars at an event. Seven SP cars were present at Ojibwe and the three cars most likely to pull off a win were going to have a major dogfight. Dave Mirra in the third Subaru team USA car had lead several times at events during the season only to have bad luck come at some point. H e was hoping for his first class win at Ojibwe in his new Subaru WRX STi. p·otr Wiktorczyk and Pat Moro were the other two drivers to watch both in the older bodied WRX STi's. Jimmy Keeney wh o won the class at Oregon and Don Conley in his son Nate's old WRX wagon m ad e t h e trek from C olo rado to compete. The other two drivers in the class were Roman Pakos, who was the class winner at N ew England, and Adam Markut in an Eagle Talon that had been leading the GT Class at Ojibwe last year before having an off on day two of the event. Also taking place as a race within a race was the Max-Attack Championship eyent for two -wheel drive cars. The biggest buzz was about the 2010 Mustang that showed up in the hands of Mark. Utecht. Mark had entered the Ford Mustang '10 Unleashed contest several months earlier hoping that he might get a chance to drive one of the new cars at a rally. One month before Ojibwe his normal rally car, a 1989 Ford Mustang, was totaled in a heavy roll at the Nemadji Trail III rally in Duquette, MN. Thank-fully, fate smiled on Mark and he was about to put on one hell of a show for Ford execs and fans alike. This would be the ONLY time Mark would compete in the car as after the rally weekend the car went back to Detroit. Lauchlin O'Sullivan was one of the other competi-tors receiving a lot of buzz prior to Ojibwe. He outright won the Idaho Rally one month earlier beating out even all of the four-wheel drive cars with the Dodge SRT-4 that he had borrowed from Doug Shepherd and Don Jankowski. O'Sullivan was no stranger to these roads as he had won two divisional events in the past as well as the 2004 Ojibwe Forests Rally at the na-tional level. The third driver to watch of the three strongest in the Max-Attack field was C h ris Duplessis in a VW GTI. Even though the car Chris drove was at a huge horsepower dis-advantage, he could always be near the front of the two-wheel d rive battle due to his smooth style of d riving. That's what put h im at the top of the podium for two-wheel drive cars at the New England Forest Rally two mont hs earlier. Other d rivers to watch in t h e Max-Attack battle at Ojibwe were W yatt Knox (Mazda Mazd aspeed 3), Jan Zedril (Mitsubishi Lancer ES), Chad Eixenberger (VW G olf), Matt Bushore (VW Jetta) and Paul Koll (VW G olf). After a quick spectator stage at the Bem idji County Fair-grounds to start the event the cars headed off to the woods and trouble started for several drivers almost immediately. Piott Wiktorczyk pulled off the road mid-stage with a blown engine on his Super Production Subaru WRX STi. His closest competitor, Dave Mirra, had a flat on the right-front early on in the stage and limped home off the pace. Max-Attack standout Chris Duplessis had a fuel relay switch go out on his GTI and lost over four minutes mid-stage. On stage three, Ken Blo~k had a heavy roll knocking him out of conten-tion while running in second overall behind Pastrana. Also on stage four Roman Pakos got a little too close to the scenery and smacked the right rear of the car against a tree which tossed the Subaru off the road. O'Sullivan in the SRT-4 pulled him off the road, however after Continued ID PIii 40 Andi Mancin and Maciej Wislawski finished second overall in their Adam Markut and Chris Gordon finished 3rd overall and they took Piotr Wiktorczyk and Grzegorz Dorman throw some gravel in practice, their Subaru WRX STi engine expired on the second stage. good lookin' Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 9. the Super Production Category in the Eagle Talon.

At the evening service in Akeley after stage four, the running order was Pastrana out front with a 2:43 lead on Andi Mancin and Dave Mirra another seven seconds back. Mancin's teammate Arkadiusz Gruszka held down fourth with Bob Olson in fifth. The surprise to everyone was the car that had moved up into sixth, Adam Markut in the Eagle Talon. His fast yet flawless style had put him into second in the Super Production class in a sixteen year old car. Be-hind him O'Sullivan was the fastest of the Max-Attack cars and held down seventh overall. Nate Conley held down eighth in the debut of his Open Class WRX STi.

Mark Fox was coming to grips with his ex-Block WRX STi and moved into seventh with the Super Produc-tion WRX's of Moro, Keeney and Don Conley rounding out the top ten.

hit a branch lying across the road puncturing his radiator and ending his day. Mirra went straight off the road at a hard right on stage eight and lost a little time refiring and backing up, but he was able to continue. The biggest excitement of the weekend came at the spectator location on stage eleven when Zach Babcock came over a crest at the end of a long straight and missed a call and rolled his SRT-4 several times with an endo and landed back on all four wheels. The car was done for the weekend and both driver and navigator were in good spirits after the wreck. At the midday break the order had changed again. Pas-trana held a 4:26 advantage over Mirra, but after stage eleven Markut had passed Mancin for third. O'Sullivan and Fox moved up to fifth and sixth after Gruszka rolled out of contention and the Super Production battle of Moro, Keeney, and Don Conley raged behind them. Dillon Van Way in a two-wheel drive Ford Focus entered as a national competi-tor and was now in tenth. Tension was mounting in the Max-Attack battle as Duplessis was setting fastest stage times over and over again to gain ground on the field. O'Sullivan came back with a few stage wins of his own in the battle and Utecht was right there as well in his Mustang. The struts and springs on the Mustang were stock and that was becoming a disadvantage. Near the end of the event Utecht was losing ground on the second place • position he was guarding in Max-Attack all day. About a mile and a half into the final stage the car came over a blind crest with a left-hand bend and the car lost traction and was high-centered on a berm on·. the outside of the corner. Fortunately, the car was pulled out of this predicament by Brian Dondlinger who was run-ning off the pace in his GTI. Utecht was able to continue but sadly finished out of the top five paying positions in the Max-Attack battle. O'Sullivan's SRT-4 handily won the Max-Attack Championship for two-wheel drive cars over Wyatt Knox's Mazdaspeed 3, Chris Duplessis's GTI, Jan Zedril's Lancer ES and Matt Bushore's VW Jetta. But that definitely wasn't the end of things up front. On stage twelve, Mancin got third place back from Markut and was pulling away. Unfortunate-ly, Dave Mirra's fine run in his problematic Super Production WRX STi came to an end yet again as the car came to a stop near the end of the stage. Now the battle was for second place overall with Mackut leading Super Production in his Eagle Talon. Mancin turned up the wick and won the three final stages and took home second behind an elated Pastrana who was able to back off a bit on the final stages. Adam Markut was the surprise at the overall po-dium and at the top spot on the Super Production charts. He later admitted that on Chad's Yump, a large jump early on day two, the car came down so hard on the nose that he nearly Dusty Times lost control. This was the only event Adam had the funds to do all year and he admitted that although he had a great time at Ojibwe, this was going to be it for the year. Mark Fox over-hauled Lauchlin O'Sullivan for fourth with two stages to go. Pat Moro, Jimmy Keeney, and Don Conley took home sixth through eighth in their Super Production Subarus. John Con-ley in a Dodge SRT-4 took over ninth spot from Dillon Van Way on the penultimate stage. Just a few weeks later, the next event on the calendar was the Colorado Rally held in Steamboat Springs, CO. As a brief recap of things neither Travis Pastrana nor Ken Block finished the event so there was a new first time winner this season. Pastrana came into a chicane after a long straight at high speed and hit a multitude of cones handing him a severe time penalty while leading. At the start of day two the Subaru Team decided to pull him from competition and save the car for the final event at Lake Superior · in Houghton, MI still a month away. Ken Block was running strong in the Super Production car normally driven by Dave Mirra. Mirra had other com-mitments during the weekend and as Block's car was totaled at Ojibwe, Subaru placed Ken in the car to do some testing and to hopefully keep him in the running for the runner-up spot in the championship after Pastrana clinched it at Ojibwe. The problems that plagued Mirra came back for Block as well and yet another DNF was handed to the team. Block stated that he would be back in the car at Lake Superior. So with the "Travis and Ken Show" coming to an end at Colorado and Andrew Comrie-Picard returning to the series after missing Ojibwe it became a first time win this season for ACP and for Mitsubishi. Andi Mancin took home second with A TIE for third between Nate Conley and Mark Fox after two hard days of rallying. Pat Moro, who almost decided to pass on going to Ojibwe and the remaining events of the season to save the car for next year, wound up becoming the Super Production Class win-ner after Piotr Wiktorczyk DNF'ed again. Jimmy Keeney took second in SP which will make the final event at Lake Superior a three-way shootout for the championship. Lastly, John Conley was the two-wheel drive class winner in his Dodge SRT-4. So, the final round at Lake Superior will be interesting. Pastrana will be running in his X-Games car which has higher horsepower. Block will try to take home a second place in the series if he can get the reli-ability of the Super Production Class WRX STi to hold togeth-er. Comrie-Picard or Mancin could also get the runner-up spot in the championship and both plan on attending. Ten total Super Production cars are entered for LSPR and it looks like it will be a battle. Will it be perfect, will it rain or will there be a foot of snow (or more). It's coming down to the wire. FUE.L SAFE.!! THE NAME SAYS ITALL. ,.,.,,.,, y_. ...... for sro/1/!'1 .,, ... _.
